Covington told The Boot
: "I think anybody over the age of five can relate to it. It's saying how you bought your first home, and your dad came over and took his flashlight and went all over the house fixing this, fixing that, but never said he liked the place. And the gist of the song is pretty much he's saying I love you the only way he knows how. It's just a magnificent song - I absolutely loved it."
The singer added that because he grew up with two fathers, a dad and a stepfather, he was able to relate the song to both of them. "It was a no-brainer for me. On that song, we did some things different, too. Every time I go into a studio I try to push it as high as you can, and this song is completely different. Not only did we not push it, we dropped it. I'm singing it with a completely different key of my voice than I usually do. I liked it, it was something different, it pushes you."
